Sometimes there will be letters on the regulator or on the wiring plug gr for green r for red bl for black etc. otherwise I would recommend a Haynes repair manual for $20.00 it contains wiring schematics that will help with this problem.

How to replace the generatos on a 1974 super beetle

to replace the dynamo on any air cooled vw, you must remove the cooling shroud. the dynamo also turns the cooling fan which is housed in the shroud itself. if this is your first experience with aircooled vw then your BEST bet is to go to your local bookstore and locate "how to keep your volkswagen alive, a guide for the complete idiot". it is an invaluable source of info for some who may or may not be mechanically inclined. ive been doing this for over 20 yrs and i still have my first one.
